Los Angeles, CA JANUARY 24, 2013 – The stories behind shocking headlines are uncovered in two new E! Specials airing back-to-back on Saturday, February 2. “Killer in the Family” details the events surrounding murders committed by family members, while “911 Calls” recounts the facts behind harrowing 911 calls that forever changed the lives of those involved. “Killer In The Family” premieres Saturday, February 2 at 7:00 PM/ET, followed by the premiere of “ 911 Calls” at 8:00 PM/ET, only on E!
In the one-hour “Killer In The Family,” interviews with survivors, witnesses and law enforcement are combined with rare footage to uncover the details behind three true accounts of deception and murder within the victims’ own homes. The mass murder of a family witnessed by an eighteen year-old, a phony burglary gone awry that ends in a brutal and fatal beating, and an entire family wiped out by a desperate need for money; these shocking cases are profiled in “Killer In The Family.”
Then, the harrowing stories behind five 911 calls that changed lives and communities forever are told in the half-hour special “911 Calls.” A shooting rampage in a busy restaurant; a shark attack off Cape Cod; an abduction; a hostage situation in a retail store, and a near-fatal choking episode are the subjects of “ 911 Calls.” First-hand accounts are compiled from witnesses, first responders, law enforcement, emergency dispatchers and supervisors, families and the victims themselves, in order to piece together the circumstances behind these five incredible calls for help.
Don’t miss the riveting drama of these all-new E! Specials, when “Killer In The Family” and “911 Calls” premiere Saturday, February 2, beginning at 7:00 PM/ET, only on E!
